Petite Picot So Proud of You

December 28, 2020

Amazing Paper Grace has gone back to her roots with classic sewing inspired motifs! Introducing the Picot Petite Collection!

Becca Feeken sent over these lovely dies for me to try.

Over time we’ve had lace-inspired designs and have loved the feel of Hemstitching and Candlewicking. Reminiscent of needlework and treasured handwork proudly displayed, Becca Feeken has developed another classic line of layering shapes that feel so much like tatting or picot crochet.  As you might imagine, these shapes are crisp, clean, and timeless. Whether you are simply adding a classic layer to a card or cutting an aperture to highlight a lovely sentiment – these shapes mix and match with other sewing inspired motifs as well as intricate backdrops.

Classic Shapes are Timeless

With each Classic Collection, Amazing Paper Grace creates the most popular die-cutting shapes in oval, round, square, and rectangles. Moreover, these classic shapes mix and match with Hemstitch Classics, Candlewick Classics, Elegant Twist Classics, and now Picot Petit.The Inspiration behind Picot Petite

If you’ve ever seen tatting, the little loop produced along the edge is called a “picot”.  It’s this little loop that is the basis for the border on all of the Petite Picot shapes.  They are lovely as a backdrop for any other layerings as the little picot peeks out.  It’s just a subtle way to bring in the ways of classic needlework to give texture and dimension to the backdrop of our cards.

For this card I have used the beautiful filigree dies from the Amazing Paper Grace Bed of Lace Etched Dies from Picot Petite by Becca Feeken The sentiment is from the Amazing Paper Grace Heart Felt Sentiments Glimmer Hot Foil Plate & Die Set Sweet Cardlets by Becca Feeken

My favourite flowers are roses and I really enjoy making roses using the Amazing Paper Grace Candlewick Rosebud Etched Dies Candlewick Sampler Collection by Becca Feeken. I have added some small filler flowers using the small flower dies from the Elegant Infinity – Amazing Paper Grace Die of the Month Club which is still available for sale until stocks last. I added some gold leaves from the Amazing Paper Grace Cinch and Go Flowers III Etched Dies Elegant 3D Vignettes by Becca Feeken and the flourish from the Amazing Paper Grace December Die of the Month Blog Hop – Rose Garden Promise.

These are the dies that I have used to create this card:

Happy Crafting
